Re: Air Antwerp in 2020

No, completely not. It was the period before the Dutch came. I think they took over VLM in 2008 and transformed it inti Cityjet. I'm talking the period before that. It was even not 8 year but even 10 years in a row that they made profit. The management was also very solid with a Belgian CEO The Bel...

Re: Air Belgium in 2020

I wonder how Air Belgium will be able to position itself while SN will face hard times after the coronavirus crisis... No where I guess, Air Belgium was mainly making money with ACMI contract (British Airways, Lot, etc) with the reduce demand those contract will certainly stop. Add to that that the...

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Indeed, staff shortage is a federal issue and a widespread one in the federal police due to years of structural lack of funding. The infrastructure however is BAC... Tables, (office)chairs,... are all supplied by BAC, policerelated equipment (cars, IT, guns,...) by the federal police. And it's a fa...

Air Belgium is to announce the new destination in end February, however, the airline denies that it will be Mauritius.
My guess: Réunion

Réunion, j'aime ton nom
Although Mauritius airports attract 3,7 mio PAX versus 2,4 PAX for St. Denis Réunion

Re: Brussels Airlines' fleet renewal

With Air Italy, AtlasGlobal etc going bust, many A330 will go back to lessor.
maybe there are some opportunities for SN to expand a little at good conditions…

Re: Brussels Airport (BRU) infrastructure: future

Brussels Airport has released what is in my mind the single biggest mistake ever... https://btag.brusselsairport.be/en -it tries to generate additional revenue due to baggage handling taking a very long time. In other words, there will be no incentive in the future to speed up baggage handling! It'...

Re: Brussels Airlines in 2020

It was a late afternoon flight. I remind you about the evening flight to JFK in the time of Sabena. This was the most successful flight they had. It was all the time 100% booked. A lot of those pax were pax who lost their connection somewhere in Europe. As SN was the only airline who offered a flig...

My thought is that one of the 2 new airlines at Charleroi can't be Brussels Airlines, as he would have already invited Vranckx at CRL to negociate.

It would be a non sense to say that it is Beeline, as negociations doesn't seem to have started yet.
How do you know ??
